This book provides a comprehensive description of stoma care including the physical and psychological care of patients pre- and post-operatively. The patient-centred style of nursing shows how nurses' knowledge and skills can be specifically used to promote patients' long term rehabilitation as well as fulfill their immediate requirements. Patient scenarios give a dynamic sense of the concerns which many patients experience, and how their needs can be helpfully addressed. All the chapter contributors have specialist knowledge in stoma care and/or related fields such as communication, psychosocial care and pharmacology.
